Six motorists stuck on the wrong side of the road

Canterbury Police are ‘disappointed’ by dangerous driving on a stretch of State Highway 1 south of Kaikoura, including a vehicle towing a boat seen taking a bend with all six wheels on the wrong side of the road .

Sergeant John Hamilton said North Canterbury Highway Patrol issued six violations to drivers who crossed the center line on the Hundalee Range in just over an hour on Thursday.

“It’s incredibly frustrating that we are catching so many drivers risking not only their own lives, but the lives of other drivers as well.”

He said this is how head-on collisions occurred at or near corners where motorists had less time to react.

“We will continue to stop drivers for this behaviour, in an attempt to improve driving behavior on our roads.”

Failure to keep left results in a $150 fine and 20 demerit points.
